Thanks for the reply. I have read those articles and tried quite a few of the options to try and break out of this plateau, but no luck so far.

The new Nutrition Tracker is confusing because it is definitely giving me a much higher calorie goal on the days when I run.

The body should easily have enough reserves to be able to cope with 3-5 mile runs, and replenish those reserves on non-running days. If you started talking 8-10 mile runs, then the need to eat more on workout days may be more compelling.

may help you identify some of the underlying causes.

I have a question about the amount of calories I need based on my workout.

I've been on Spark for a year and half. In the first year I lost weight, but for the last 6 months I have not lost any weight. A big time plateau. I've been running since last August, trying to maintain a 3 runs/week schedule, 3-5 miles each.

I have a FitBit for tracking my activity. I just switched to the new Spark nutrition tracker and it's telling me I have more calories to eat today, a lot more than I expected. Have I not been eating enough? How can I tell how much I should be eating on the days I run vs. the days that I walk/weight train?

Thanks.
